Dear Neighbors,

How many times in our lives are we presented with an opportunity to make a difference in our world?

The Hayek Group, a Reno Based 501(c)(3) Economic Educational organization, is posed to make a difference in lives of our Northern Nevada High School Community. This is not some large organization with a multitude of paid fundraisers asking you to help make a difference 3000 miles away. This is local and as grassroots as it gets.

Today’s Reality is the result of some solvable issues:

• Fewer than half of all high school seniors in our country and community qualify as financially literate. Without financial literacy education, they will carry this lack of knowledge into adulthood.

• The existing school curriculum consists of three weeks of simple instruction during the High School Senior year.

• More than 7 million student loan borrowers are in default. Many more will never get out of debt in their lifetimes.

• Young people are facing tremendous financial challenges with out the knowledge needed to thrive in today’s economy.

The Solution is available and we in the local community can be part of that solution. Dave Ramsey’s Foundations in Personal Finance is the premier curriculum for teaching financial literacy. The curriculum is easy to use and completely turnkey. The 12-chapter curriculum is taught on DVD by a nationally known team of experts. This is a semester-long course that meets all state and national standards for personal finance/financial literacy. It has more than 100 activities that focus on providing 21st century personal finance knowledge and skills in a student-centered, competency-based approach to learning.

The Hayek Group is committed to working with the Ramsey Foundation to deliver this solution to Northern Nevada High Schools. But they can’t do it alone. They need your help. Last fall our Golf Tournament/Dinner was a great success; we raised over $30,000. Since that time, the Foundations in Finance program has been put into the Washoe School District curriculum for the 2016/2017 year. The potential is that 1,400 students in the next year will have a life changing experience. There are many ways you can help raise money to bring the Dave Ramsey Foundations in Personal Finance program into all Washoe County High Schools!

Tax’D ‘N Tattered Event

Dinner activities include an exciting live auction. Enjoy entertainment by the Reno Youth Jazz Ensemble. All proceeds will benefit the Hayek Education Initiative.
